November ​9-10, 201​5​

Sponsored by:
Groundwater Resources Association of California
University of California Cooperative Extension Groundwater Hydrology Program

Course Description
​Understanding the fundamental principles of groundwater and watershed​s and how we monitor, assess, and​ ​sustainably manage these resources under climate change and variability is critical and integral ​to  many water-related programs​. Whether​ at the local, state, and federal level​, these programs are designed for sustainable development and protection of water resources in California ​ among competing users​. ​Increasingly, professionals, ​decision makers, ​executives, and employees of diverse background and in a wide variety of private, non-profit, and government responsibilities at the local, state, and federal level are directly or indirectly involved in the ​sustainable ​ management and assessment of groundwater and surface water, including the implementation of ​the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act through ​groundwater ​sustainability agencies and plans, source water assessments, urban water management plans, and integrated regional water management plans. Yet, many participants find themselves lacking the multidisciplinary background, expertise, or means to meet the technical and regulatory challenges related to groundwater, water and drinking water resources management. The amount of technical information available often seems overwhelming.
